SANDY HOOK - A public hearing hosted by the National Park Service will meet tomorrow to discuss the future of Fort Hancock and its more than 30 buildings on Sandy Hook.
Fort Hancock is a former U.S. Army fort. It has played a significant role in military history, including its role keeping German submarines from traversing the New York Harbor during World War II. The fort was decommissioned in 1974.
For years, residents have debated over what to do with the property. Some want it left alone, others suggest turning it into commercial property or preserving it as an historic landmark and research space.
Tomorrow's hearing will accept suggestions as to what should be done with the property. It will be held at the Fort Hancock chapel from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m.
A panel of 30 will assist the National Park Service with its final decision.
